Maker Profile: Pei-Pei Lu, Designs by Pei-Pei

Pei-Pei’s story reminds us of the hidden talents in all of us, and the importance of putting energy into things that light us up. Design, detail, and exceptional quality are what you can expect from any piece in her collection. You will feel inspired wearing anything designed by Pei-Pei!  

I've had a passion for art and design for as long as I can remember. I work as an engineer by day in the Bay Area and a freelance jewelry artist by night. I started making jewelry for family and friends about 12 years ago. I am still in awe of how I got to where I am today. My jewelry business started as a simple hobby apart from my full-time job, and a way to relieve stress. I remember borrowing towers of metalworking and crafting books from the library and teaching myself how to make jewelry from scratch. Over the years, I've been able to let my passion run free, and I love seeing others enjoying my creations.

My work is inspired by the free spirit of Pacific coast and the nature that is all around me. I find that my pieces channel a sense of bohemian elegance, a little whimsy, yet sophisticated. I like to describe my jewelry as bohemian-inspired designs. I draw much of my inspiration from nature and the free spirit of the Pacific Coast, and I enjoy coordinating color schemes and materials accordingly. 

Jewelry is just wearable art! I want people to have fun with my pieces and I hope to spark joy when customers wear them. I hope that they can also feel how much love is put into every creation. I am honored to be a Maker for Inspired Jules because I think it is a great way to share my designs with the rest of the world. In addition, I get to be a part of such a talented and creative group of artists!
